Checked temperature inside our rig, a balmy 74 degrees, using only a 115VAC oil filled radiator type space heater left on temperature setting 5 of 6. Good, no need for propane all winter!

Still have not winterized plumbing, waiting for the next 70 degree Carolina December day.

Towed it (yesterday) from Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in Southern Arizona, back up to Quartzsite. Got the basic set up of the TT done, but need to put down my front carpet today, plus unload the rest of the stuff from the bed of the truck. It was a nice, relaxing 4 hour trip.

Replaced the 4AA's in the keyless lock. Parked in the CG for the next week and wait NO HOT WATER after winterizing earlier. Found I didn't close the bypass valve after filling the tank

Fixed a plumbing issue (kinked piece of PEX) I found when hunting down the water pump.

I bought one of these: Shop Superior Tool 3/8-in , 1/2 -in, 3/4-in Pliers at Lowes.com several years ago . I carry it in the camper along with a small supply of 1/2" and 3/4"crimp rings. That and a pair of vice grips will fix a pex joint in a jiffy if you only have a few to do.

Well it is finely fixed, New doors and the under belly replaced looks great. But wooden you know it, the company that made the doors ( No longer in Business) so the door frames are smaller, so they needed to drill new holes and do body work.( It works)
The power Jack packed it in, will be replacing it soon.
The trailer is now moved out of the storage area, over to the repairman back yard for the winter, then over to his shop in the spring.
Will cover it on the 30th then heading to Kamloops for New Years with some friends.


MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

I used stainless hose clamps vs. the PEX crimp rings as the location for both joined was hard to reach as best. I assume those will hold just as well? If not, it's back to Lowes for the crimp rings and tool...

Watched a few movies and sipped a few beers while my TT was buffeted by 40mph gusts of wind. Kind of a shake and bake day today.

Towed it from Ft. Wilderness to Albany RV Park in Albany, GA. One night here and then on to my home base. 323 miles towed yesterday and 12.3 mpg.
